i read all nine pages, and found no one recommending Bono or u2. interesting.

i also love the world of Gavin Friday, he has a number of songs on YouTube. www.gavinfriday.com

Bob Geldof has put out some awesome solo projects in his day, i still enjoy them.

Andrea Coor is another lovely voice i recommend.

=)

Did some of you ever heard of Deborah Henson-Conant ? She's just amazing...and a little bit crazy sometimes ! But what she can do with her harps is incredible. I especially "Baroque Flamenco", it's a mix between 2 different kinds of music : GREAAAAT !
~Janne~ lent me the DVD Invention and Alchemy, I could watch it for hours !

YESS!!! Deborah is absolutely amazing and a "little" crazy? That's an understatement :lol:.She did a concert at my harp studio a couple years ago, and it was sooo cool. There were only like fifty people there, and Deborah talked about all her songs ... she even did "Danny Boy" as her last song after swearing at least five times during the concert that she hated it :lol: Fun memories .... and her hair is wild :shock: . I think my favorite song of hers would either be "Budapest", "The Rain King", or "Altered Ego", but I also love "The Nightingale" :D

Ribbons. She braids her hair with ribbons while watching movies and it takes her six hours :shock::lol:

If I haven't done so already I would like to recommend the artist known as Jens Gad.

He was a former guitar player on Enigma, and has recently released a few solo projects of which the following are very much in the Enigma style but all his own (and different at the same time). I highly recommend his music to anyone who likes Enigma or likes sampled music with EXCELLENT electric guitar playing:"

albums
--------

Secrets of Seduction (under a different name than Jens Gad)

Achillae - The Nine Worlds
Achillae - Amadas Estrellas (to be released in February 2007)



Love,
Phantas

I just got a friend invite from a french singer called cecile corbel on myspace, and i listened to a few of her pieces- they are FANTASTIC!!

http://www.myspace.com/cecilecorbel

I can see why her version of 'siul a ruin' might not appeal to all tastes, it's a bit 'pop' for a very traditional song, but dont let that put you off- the other tracks on there are faaabulous- i especially like the first and third. She also has 2 of the brennan sisters in her top friends- you can't go much wrong, can you?? :lol:

I found out about this band called The Hush Sound. They make very happy music, though sometimes it's a bit standart, but cool anyway ^ ^ They have a male and a female singer, which makes it a nice combination.
Check out their site if you're interested =):

oh yes, "My Immortal" is a great song :)

I would like to recommend two ladies, both related to Mike Oldfield in a way and I'm aware that there's been a separate thread on Mike Oldfield somewhere here, but I'd like to mention the solo work of those two:

Maggie Reilly
yep, the one behind "Moonlight shadow" and "To France", but she's pursued her solo career since the early 1990's. She has already released six solo albums and co-operated with some other artists apart from Mike Oldfield. She has such a pure beautiful voice and I also like the lyrics of her songs :) She's been touring around the Netherlands quite recently. Here's her official website:
http://www.maggiereilly.co.uk/index.htm (you can actually listen to some samples in the Music section)
and a very nice unofficial website:
http://reilly.szm.com/

Sally Oldfield
the sister to Mike Oldfield, pursuing her solo career since the 1970's, I believe. Her music has been one of my latest discoveries so I haven't heard much from her, yet, I think she has a very interesting voice and she knows what to do with it. She's sung some gloomy ballads, but also some songs that are very optimistic. Her style has been changing a lot during those years.

Just discovered that one of the worship leaders at my church is selling her lastest CD on the Web.

It's Joan Doré - she's a scottish lass, and has written many of her own worship songs, some of which we use in our services. Some songs are quite lively, Scottish-celtic style, while others are more meditative and reflective.

Here is a link to her album, "Another Day".

Luned - I know of Maggie Reilly and Sally Oldfield from your report there, but that's all. Good recommendations!
